There is still plenty of his work i havent read but this is pretty bad.
I respect the Man décision and his explications though.
Also i can't wait to read his 1200 pages Jérusalem

What do you do when you're retired from writing comics? I assume it's like a lot of things, like, if you need to create art you just need to. Do you chuck the caran d'ache pencil set in the desk drawer and do some gardening or what?! Maybe you do the odd drawing but mostly do other things and enjoy having no deadlines?
Maybe I should read the article...

I enjoy his prose work as much as, if not more than, his comics, so i don't mind.

Well, I'll believe it when I see it... there was a sort of big deal made back in the late 80s when Moore "retired" from making super hero comic books, in favor of stuff like From Hell and Lost Girls... but he eventually unexpectedly returned to the genre in the most unlikely way, doing stuff for Image and Spawn! He does like to surprise people. He also had felt in the past that he was uninterested in continuing to write film scripts, after he had written Fashion Beast, but years later seems to have gotten a new interest in film scripting. I figure he'll just continue to do things that interest him, and hopefully some cool interesting work will come out of it for the rest of us to appreciate and get excited about... Maybe he'll go into hair-care products or shaving cream.
